Be careful next time you get accosted by a flirty stranger in an Internet chatroom: He or she could just be a Russian chat-up bot out to steal your identity.

Internet security experts say that Russian programmers have created a piece of software known as CyberLover that can infiltrate dating sites and chatrooms and patiently seduce its victims.


The "bot" solicits and collects information such as home addresses, telephone numbers and personal photographs, which are then used to compile a profile that can be sold on to identity thieves.

Chat-up bots? Those Russians appear to have way too much time on their hands :D

Imagine the humilation; Not only do you find you've been spending weeks chatting up ones and zeros. You find you're now 'cloned'.
Now that's gotta hurt :p
